UNO has a long history of working with military and veteran students as well as their families. In the fall of 2010 UNO’s Mav USO office conducted a survey of military and veteran students.
The results of the study showed that military and veteran students knew UNO had a lot of great programs and services to support them. What they didn’t know was how to access those programs.
Hayley Patton, Director of Military and Veterans Programs at UNO, says that will change in a few weeks as UNO opens a new military and veterans university services office to assist these students.
"And this will be a one-stop office for military and veterans students at UNO to get support, get questions answered, figure out how to get started at UNO, pretty much anything they need at the university, they can come to this one office and we’ll help them figure out where to go next.”
UNO holds classes at Offutt Air Force Base and was recently named one of the top 10 veteran-friendly schools nationwide by Military Times magazine.
